Eagles Vs Cowboys Was The Highest Rated Sunday Night Football Game Ever

Another week, another ratings record broken for the Eagles. Their Sunday night game against the Dallas Cowboys was the highest rated game in the history of Sunday Night Football on NBC. Whether it’s just the exciting brand of football that the Eagles play for the resurgence of Michael Vick that has America so enamored with watching the Eagles, it’s hard to deny that they’re the top draw in the NFL right now.

Here’s just a few of the Eagles ratings superlatives from this season.

↵

Their Sunday night game against the Giants was the highest rated Sunday night game in 12 years.

↵

Their game against the Bears was the highest rated NFL game of the season on any network.

↵

Their early November matchup with the Colts was the highest rated regular season game on CBS in three years and was at that point the highest rated TV program in America since the start of the NFL season.

↵

That game eclipsed the previous highest rated TV program in 2010 which was… Eagles vs Packers on opening day.

Sorry Cowboys, looks like America has chosen another team.
